The Aviation Business Program is intended to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary for active flying careers in the aviation industry. Emphasis is placed on helping students develop knowledge and skills that are appropriate for the unique aviation business environment in the NWT. The Aviation Business Program provides students with an opportunity to acquire a two-year Diploma.
The Aviation Business Diploma is composed of two distinct segments. One segment consists of the ground school and flight training component to achieve a Commercial Pilot’s Licence delivered by the Fort Smith based Terry Harrold School of Aviation, or other Transport Canada approved Flight Training Unit. The other segment is relevant business courses delivered by Aurora College. Tuition fees and costs related to obtaining the pilot’s licences are paid directly to the Flight School, and are in addition to Aurora College’s tuition and student fees.
To graduate, students must earn Transport Canada’s Commercial Pilot Licence, plus ten Aurora College courses (30 credits) and a non-credit Wilderness Survival and First-Aid course.
